Motorsport Monday: 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR Tribute

The 1970s Porsche 911 Carrera RSR are without a doubt one of my favorite race cars. Stretching the limits of that rear-engine design, Porsche employed both monstrous rear tires and aerodynamic aids to help tame the serious amount of grunt they were able to extract from the race prepared flat-6. And while I’m not alone in loving the RSR, not many were made leading to a fair amount of replicas of the various iterations. Some, like the last RSR replica we featured, take the iconic IROC cars as their inspiration, while others replicate more unique examples. But over the past few years backdating Carrera 3.2s and 964s has become popular, and it comes as no surprise to see today’s example – a 1984 Carrera 3.2 that’s been given the full-on RSR look – but unlike many other replicas, has remained streetable:

From the build specifications, it looks like the seller has gone to great lengths to create a drivable tribute; retaining such amenities as A/C, power windows and a sunroof. These are all first-to-go items in usual RSR builds. The look is great; the two tone grey-scale Gulf inspired scheme works really well in my mind, and of course the requisite very wide wheels are there. In this case they’re not the usual BBS variants but Compomotive; they look a tad undersized in the rear (shocking to say, I know) but the overall look is great. Retaining the original power unit – and not heavily modifying it – means this car is drivable, more dependable, and more easily fixable than racing counterparts. The question of value is an interesting one; clearly there’s a tremendous amount of effort, time and money that has gone into the conversion. The results are in my mind great, though I’d have to say if I really wanted a streetable 911 this probably isn’t the route I’d go – I’d probably take the much more modest and original Carrera 3.2. Despite this, $35,000 doesn’t get you an engine rebuild on a real RSR, and so few even get to see them in person that if you want a 911 to make you special and occasionally fling around, perhaps this is the one.
